On Saturday, January 25 in cities across the globe, there will be protests against a new war in the Middle East.

The Trump administration is threatening war with Iran, the US is disregarding the Iraqi Parliament's vote to expel US troops from their country, and the US continues to occupy Afghanistan and more... Oh and the US is increasing sanctions designed to kill ordinary Iranians.

People in the US need to stand up to our government and their war machine to say NO MORE WAR AND OCCUPATION! Join the newly forming Portland Anti-War Coalition in a rally and demonstration on January 25th. The only way we can beat back the drums of war is together, and it is time to get organized!

Meet in front of the Pioneer Courthouse, 700 SW 6th Ave (across from Pioneer Courthouse Square) at 2:30 PM sharp.

If your organization or group wants to join the coalition, reach out to Portland DSA or other coalition members!

The people of Iran are still suffering from brutal sanctions that are a
form of economic warfare, and Trump has added new additional sanctions.
Please join us in speaking out against war with Iran.

Join the next Fossil Fuel Resistance Team meeting!
In order to stop the climate crisis from getting worse, we have to keep the remaining fossil fuel reserves in the ground. The Pacific Northwest is currently facing many active proposals for new fossil fuel infrastructure that if built would lock us into the fossil fuel economy and its carbon pollution for decades to come. The Fossil Fuel Resistance team seeks to stop new fossil fuel projects from being built in Portland or to service the Portland metro area, and to engage in regional fights to stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure in the PNW and beyond!
Current fights



Stop Jordan Cove LNG Export Terminal and Pacific Connector Pipeline (down in Southern Oregon)
Zenith Energy – Oil Trains in Portland – Alberta tar sands is being covertly exported right under our noses
Stop Kalama Methanol Refinery – if built would be largest in the world
Perennial Wind Chaser – a nice sounding name for a proposed 415-megawatt fracked gas power plant in Central Oregon
Click here to read more about this team



If you’re new and want to get up to speed, please let Melanie know (team co-lead, melanie.plaut@gmail.com) and she can meet you 30 minutes before the start time to explain what the team is up to.

Jan 31 Fri
Every Friday folks are assembling outside City Hall in an energetic and colorful vigil to keep the pressure on Mayor Ted Wheeler to shut down the Zenith tar sands terminal in NW Porland, and to raise awareness from people and cars passing by.
Bring signs or banners, or just bring yourself. Among the many things such a sign can say is “Fire Drill Fridays,” “Stop Zenith Energy,” “No More Bomb Trains,” “Mayor & Commissioners: Stand Strong!” 2×3 signs are big enough to be visible to walkers-by and drivers-by.
These vigils typically have strong representations from 350PDX, the Stop Zenith Energy Collaborative, the Raging Grannies, Red, Extinction Rebellion, several students from Portland Public Schools and PSU, and a 12 foot tall puppet and some excellent street theater!!

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 12-1 pm, in front of Portland City Hall. Let’s keep this growing!

“Occupella is a group of social justice singers and instrumentalists. We sing to promote peace, social and environmental justice, and an end to corporate domination.
You are invited to sing with us on the first Sunday in February! We will introduce ourselves, discuss the connection between music/song and social justice organizing, and join together in song as we fundraise for two local organizations. 350PDX is a people-powered movement to fight for a just transition and an end to the climate crisis. Never Again Action is a Jewish political organization that uses nonviolent resistance to protest Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Our sing-a-long event is free but we will pass the hat for donations to these two organizations working on human rights and climate issues. Some light refreshments will be served – please bring your own reusable cup or water bottle for beverages. Hope to see you there!” Facebook event here.

The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) was set to make a decision about the critical “removal-fill” permit for Jordan Cove LNG by no later than Friday, January 31st. Jordan Cove LNG, fearing a denial, withdrew its application on Thursday, January 24th: www.rogueclimate.org/jordancovelngwithdraws
Impacted landowners, tribal members, and south coast residents working to protect Oregon from Jordan Cove LNG will hold a press conference in response to Jordan Cove LNG’s withdrawal on Tuesday, February 4th at 9:30am immediately prior to the State Lands Board meeting at the Department of State Lands in Salem.
The massive Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and 229-mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline cannot be built without a removal-fill permit. The Department of State Lands has the authority to deny permits for projects that are not consistent with the protection, conservation, or best use of Oregon’s waters and that unreasonably interfere with navigation, fishing, or public recreation. Over 49,000 comments were submitted to DSL by impacted communities and close to 3,000 people, mostly rural Southern Oregon residents, spoke out against the project at overflowing DSL hearings in Klamath County, Jackson County, Douglas County, Coos County, and Salem. After two years of wasting state agency time and taxpayer money, Jordan Cove LNG clearly did not meet the bar to get this state permit. Oregonians are calling on Pembina to withdraw the fracked gas project entirely.
Please WEAR RED as we respond to Jordan Cove LNG’s withdrawal and show the Department of State Lands and Oregon Governor Kate Brown that we are watching this process closely. #StopJordanCove #NoLNG
When: Tuesday, February 4th, 9:30am
Where: Oregon Department of State Lands, 775 Summer St. NE, Salem, OR

Iowa* and New Hampshire, now on the board!

Maybe by then Biden will have been put out to pasture, Buttigieg exposed as a rodent in a man suit fraud, Warren will run for VP, and if we're lucky we may have as much as 93% of the (dubiously tallied) Iowa results.

Join Portland DSA and your fellow comrades to see how much speaking time Bloomberg's money can buy, how many times Bernie is pressed over something hella cool he said in the 70s, and how many questions MSNBC can squeeze in about Russian twitter accounts or obscure Ukrainian ambassadorial aids. Despite it all, Bernie remains unstoppable, crushing the competition in nonwhite and young voters, and maintaining a healthy lead in several upcoming states. Show up to support the working class champion!

We will have Bernie/DSA gear and literature available, please take a look!

Portland NAACP is teaming up with OPAL and the Climate Justice Alliance to bring a National conversation to our local community.
Get (free) tickets here.
In the past, and to some extent still now, when people think of environmentalism, they often think of saving the whales or hugging trees! When folks think about climate change, what often comes to mind are melting ice caps and suffering polar bears. Historically, American society has failed to make the connection in terms of the direct impact of environmental injustices, including climate change, on our own lives, families, and communities, all of whom depend on the physical environment and its bounty.

Environmental injustice is about people in Detroit, Ohio, Chicago, Memphis, Kansas City, and elsewhere who have died and others who are chronically ill due to exposure to toxins from coal fired power plants and other toxic facilities.
Climate change is about the increase in the severity of storms which means that storms like Sandy and Isaac, which devastated communities from Boston to Biloxi, will become more of the norm. our sisters and brothers in the Bahamas, as well as Inuit communities in Kivalina, Alaska, and communities in Thibodaux, Louisiana and beyond, who will be losing their homes to rising sea levels in the coming few years.
Climate change and environmental injustice are about sisters and brothers from West Virginia to Tennessee who are breathing toxic ash from blasting for mountain top removal.
Environmental injustice and climate change are about the fact that in many communities it is far easier to find a bag of Cheetos than a carton of strawberries and this only stands to get worse as drought and flooding impact the availability and affordability of nutritious food.

This conversation will work at addressing the many practices that are harming communities nationwide and the policies needed to rectify these impacts and advance a society that fosters sustainable, cooperative, regenerative communities that uphold all rights for all people in harmony with the earth.

Someone once said that imperialism is “the highest stage of capitalism”. Situated in the heart of the empire, DSA’s anti-imperialist working group combats imperialism on the local, state, national and international levels.

Activism and Shame — how are those things connected? Activism is awesome, right? Right!

Feb 21 Fri
Partner event:
“Join forest and climate activists to make it clear that we agree with the science: Clearcuts Cause Climate Change and we don’t have time for false solutions!
Facebook event here.
On February 21st, we will gather at the intersection of 13th and Monroe in Eugene to demonstrate at the 2020 Oregon Logging Conference (OLC), who have claimed a theme this year of “Working Forests, Carbon Keepers”. The OLC includes speakers from the Oregon Forest Industries Council and Timber Unity, organizations that have lobbied against Oregon’s 2019 and 2020 climate legislation.
This rally stands in support of a just transition for Oregon’s timber industry as well as responsible, climate smart forest management that provides jobs and wood products without destroying Oregon’s forests and watersheds. We will make an effort to reach both students and workers attending the event with the truth about clearcut logging, which is being promoted as a climate solution. The rally will include a calm space where those attending the conference are invited to Talk to a Climate Activist with a warm drink and a pastry.
Studies from Oregon State University and the Oregon Global Warming Commission show that logging is one of Oregon’s biggest sources of greenhouse gasses, and wood products only store ~20% of the carbon that was sequestered in the forest they came from.”
PDX City Club
12:00 PM - 1:15 PM
Friday Forum
 
Every Friday folks are assembling outside City Hall in an energetic and colorful vigil to keep the pressure on Mayor Ted Wheeler to shut down the Zenith tar sands terminal in NW Porland, and to raise awareness from people and cars passing by.
Bring signs or banners, or just bring yourself. Among the many things such a sign can say is “Fire Drill Fridays,” “Stop Zenith Energy,” “No More Bomb Trains,” “Mayor & Commissioners: Stand Strong!” 2×3 signs are big enough to be visible to walkers-by and drivers-by.
These vigils typically have strong representations from 350PDX, the Stop Zenith Energy Collaborative, the Raging Grannies, Red, Extinction Rebellion, several students from Portland Public Schools and PSU, and a 12 foot tall puppet and some excellent street theater!!

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 12-1 pm, in front of Portland City Hall. Let’s keep this growing!
